"I am incredibly proud of our Soldiers and how they responded to this unprecedented event that affected everyone living in Puerto Rico," said Brig. Gen. Christopher O. Mohan, commanding general of the 3rd Expeditionary Sustainment Command.

"While there is much work still to be done, I feel confident that the resiliency of the Puerto Rican people will ensure a successful recovery."

Soldiers assigned to the 3rd ESC also supported relief efforts in Texas and Florida.

ABC11 has decided to slowly reduce the number of stories on the website that have a comments section. We believe very strongly that our audience should have an opportunity to discuss and debate events in our world, however, we have not been able to moderate the comments as well as we would like. Instead of hosting a platform that could allow a few loud and ugly voices to dominate a conversation, we want to encourage everyone to join us on our social media platforms and speak out there.
